As Real Madrid complete the 2021/22 La Liga season, all eyes are on the Champions League final against Liverpool.
Los Blancos face the Reds in Paris, and the key will be heading into this game 100% healthy – but also with 100% sharpness.
It is therefore a huge positive to hear that two important players will be able to return in time – not just for the game against Liverpool itself, but also in a way that would allow them to get minutes to return to the sharpness of the match.
David Alaba and Dani Ceballos will play for Real Madrid against Betis
According to a report by Javi Herraez of Cadena SER, Real Madrid star centre-back David Alaba will finally make his return on May 22 against Real Betis. Alaba was injured for several matches, having pushed himself to play against Manchester City in the first leg. He struggled and left at half-time, as he aggravated the injury.
In addition to Alaba, central midfielder Dani Ceballos will be able to return for the same game, the last game of the LaLiga season against Los Verdiblancos. It would be a great opportunity for Ceballos to play against his former club, with whom he was linked before his recent outburst which made him more likely to stay in the Spanish capital.
Ceballos picked up the injury just before the game against Atletico Madrid which would have been a huge opportunity for the in-form midfielder to shine. He had been a revelation in wins over Osasuna and Espanyol, as well as positive appearances off the bench against Manchester City in the Champions League.
Alaba’s return would be most important against Liverpool as he was once a leader for Real Madrid and their most consistent defender. She’s a star.

Ceballos is not a starter, but his return would also be a significant boost. He has become an important player from the bench for Carlo Ancelotti, who trusts and respects the Spain international.
